Great room with an amazing view. Staff very accommodating and friendly. Wine and cheese in the evening and great continental breakfast in the morning. I Would recommend this to anyone coming to Carmel.

This is a perfect romantic getaway for a weekend in Carmel. This is my third stay at this wonderful hotel. My boyfriend from out of state came to visit and we stayed in room 24. It is a smaller room but it has a lovely private balcony overlooking the ocean. A very beautiful view and romantic setting. The hotel staff...

My wife and I stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn after having visited our daughter in San Francisco. When we arrived, the staff was especially courteous and helpful in giving us information about the local area. We checked into our room about 4:00 pm and were amazed at the beautiful view of the ocean, and the colorful vistas from our...

I've been around the world and Carmel by the sea is my favorite destination now. Tickle pink was such a treat to stay at. You absolutely must stay in a room with a full ocean view it is worth the extra money. The sun rises and sun set are very lovely and you can see them from your balcony while...

It goes to say that 27 years is a milestone. We planned to make our anniversary extra special and The Tickle Pink Inn was the best choice. Although reasonably priced for the AMAZING views, even in the overcast and rainy weather, it was breath taking. Nestled in the hills of Carmel it is rather tricky to drive up and down...

We stayed here during Super Bowl weekend. Arriving here, we were stunned by the breathtaking view in front of our room. The bed is extremely soft for a good night sleep. But I don't like the smell in the room, which reminds me of Grandpa's hair oil. In addition, we could hear the noise from upstairs frequently, which annoyed us....

I am sorry that your stay did not live up to your expectations. We are planning on quite a few changes for our outside Terrace Deck to better accommodate our guests in inclement weather. We do appreciate your input and hope to see you again.

Two nights at the Tickle Pink Inn for a little get-away long weekend were perfect. The Inn is well maintained and clean. Fantastic view over the Pacific (we were in room 20), and we were lucky to be there the last weekend in January at the start of the California Grey Whale migration. Lots of whale spouts, and occasionally a...

If you get a room with an ocean view you may not want to leave it. Rooms are very nice with balconies. Included wine and cheese in the evening could serve as a light supper. The breakfast is more than just continental. A reasonable buffet with hot and cold food will keep you going well into the deay.

Just finished a 3 night stay. The weather wasn't great, but our stay was nice and relaxing. The setting offers great views of the cliffs and surf. The sunsets when visible are a great way to end the day and start the evening. Our suite Rm 34 overlooked a small cove. You could hear the waves crashing on the rocks...
